Managing our people effectively and respectfully


Our employees sit at the heart of our efforts to become the global leader in sustainable gold mining – and are fundamental to our bottom line. If we are to achieve our Goal of 5 million ounces of quality gold production by 2015, we need a well-trained, motivated and stable workforce.

This is particularly important given current competition for global mining talent. In this context, we are committed to ensuring that we stay an employer of choice within the mining sector – whether for technical experts, managers or operational personnel. As part of this commitment, we aim to provide a constructive and supportive working environment in which our employees can develop and excel to our mutual benefit. We also aim to ensure that our employees are properly rewarded for their efforts through competitive remuneration and benefit packages.

We endeavour to help build local capacity and broaden the pool of skills where we operate by employing and developing local staff at all levels of the business. This approach is in line with our efforts to empower historically disadvantaged individuals within our workforce in South Africa. By doing so, we aim to make it more representative of the demographics of the country, and to promote the employment of nationals in all the regions in which we operate.
